 FINAL CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 TEACHING AND LANGUAGE CORPORA (TALC94)

 Lancaster University 10 - 13th April 1994

AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE

While the use of computer text corpora in research is now
well established, they are now being used increasingly
for teaching purposes. This includes the use of corpus
data to inform and create teaching materials; it also
includes the direct exploration of corpora by students,
both in the study of linguistics and of foreign
languages. Talc94 will bring together researchers and
teachers who are involved - or who would like to be
involved - in such work, to take part in an international
exchange of current experience and expertise.

The conference will include a single strand of about 25 papers,
with speakers including John Sinclair (Birmingham University), Dieter
Mindt (Free University of Berlin), Bill Louw (University of Zimbabwe)
and Pam Peters (MacQuarie University). In addition, there will
be poster presentations, software demonstrations and a range of
interactive workshops dealing with such topics as the ICAME CD-ROM,
multi-lingual corpora and corpus-based teaching methods.

DATE AND VENUE

The conference will be held on the campus of Lancaster
University, Lancaster, UK, from 4.00 p.m. on Sunday 10th
April to 4.00 p.m. on Wednesday, 13th April.
Accommodation will be provided in high-standard student
residences, with en suite facilities.
